Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion 

The mission of the NCC Pediatrics Residency DEI Committee is to emphasize that diversity, equity, and inclusion are essential components in our efforts to expand upon the tradition of excellence in our pediatrics residency program. We are committed to encouraging diversity of race, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, religion, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status to recognize the biases and inequities within our education, leadership, community, and patient care. Our aim is to promote a diverse professional environment that empowers each member of our community to thrive, contribute to their fullest potential, and develop the skills needed to provide culturally competent care to all families we serve. We strive to establish an inclusive program of diverse faculty, staff, and trainees whose voices and contributions are valued, respected, and celebrated.

Disrupting Discrimination

Our program aims to determine obstacles families face when attempting to discuss racial issues with their children and to provide a diverse representation of authors, images, and stories in the literature that we distribute to our patients and families.
